New Guardian Auto Bollard

APT’s Greenest Automatic Rising Bollard Ever

The Guardian bollard design challenges the conventional, as APT looked to develop a vehicle access control solution that would meet customer requirements in terms of both quality and price. In addition, careful consideration was given to the ease of installation and the environmental impact caused throughout the product lifecycle, resulting in the creation of APT’s greenest bollard ever.

The brand new 2013 bollard, designed and manufactured in the UK, is the ideal solution for sites that require stringent control of frequent vehicle access.  The robust bollard is designed to withstand impact of a regular saloon vehicle travelling at up to 20mph, whilst the mechanical components themselves have been carefully selected to guarantee long operational life.

This product is available for supply to installers at a very competitive price.
